The baby chinchompa is a skilling pet that can be obtained while catching any kind of chinchompa. The chances of getting it are dependent on the player's Hunter level.

When a player receives the pet, it will automatically try to appear as their follower. At the same time, a message in the chatbox will state You have a funny feeling like you're being followed. However, if a player receives a pet while having a follower out (for example, a cat), it will be placed into their inventory. When this occurs, the message in the chatbox will instead state You feel something weird sneaking into your backpack.

If a players inventory is full and they have a follower already, they will not receive the pet; it must instead be claimed from Probita in East Ardougne for a reclaim token, which costs 1,000,000 coins.

On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in your inventory) it will wander around the area for 30 seconds before despawning. Even if the player returns in time, the pet cannot be picked up, and can be reclaimed from Probita for a reclaim token.

## Drop rates

Shown below are the base chances of receiving a baby chinchompa.[1]

A player's actual chances of receiving it is ${\displaystyle {\frac {1}{B-(Lvl*25)}}}$, where ${\textstyle B}$ is the base chance and ${\textstyle Lvl}$ is the player's Hunter level.

Chinchompa Base chance Chance at 99
Grey 131,395 128,920
Red 98,373 95,898
Black 82,758 80,283

## Colours

Players can right-click "Metamorphosis" to randomly change the baby chinchompa's colour between grey, black, and red. When changing colours, there is a 1/10,000 chance that it will change into a gold colour. When attempting to metamorphose a golden baby chinchompa, a warning is displayed with a yes or no option. The chinchompa will retain its gold colour if the player logs out or adds it to or retrieves it from a menagerie. However, should a player die with a golden chinchompa, the pet will no longer be golden when claimed from insurance.
